Default The end of my T206 journey

Posted By: robert a

Thanks to board member Anthony S. for GIVING me the final card (Bock Hooker).
Very nice gesture!

I bought my first T206 which was Schlei Batting in 1999 and have collected the set fairly steadily until today. Have had all of the backs except for the brown variations, cobb, and the old mill print freaks.

Use to buy small groups of cards from Mark Macrae at the Tacoma Dome shows when they were still going, but mostly collected one by one using Mark Peavy's player checklist.

Thanks to you board members (too many to name) for making it a fun set to collect and for all the trading and knowledge.

Rob

That's pretty cool.  I know the chase has always been what drives me in collecting..

I would be interested in knowing what you plan to do with your T206 collection.. sell it, save it for the kids?

Congratulations on geting to the end of an 8-9 year journey. The ending was nice, with a fellow board member giving you the last card.

Rick

Congratulations on your accomplishment! Anyone who sticks it out to accomplish a collecting goal should be highly commended in my book, especially to complete the Monster T206! Enjoy the wonderful feeling!
Best Wishes,
Tim Kindler
